Share-Net Netherlands kindly invites you for an online meeting on “Menstrual Health: Learnings from the RITU Programme in Bangladesh”.

This meeting is organised by the Dutch and Bangladeshi partners who have been involved in the Ritu programme for the past four years: Simavi, TNO, DORP, BNPS and RedOrange.

The Ritu programme aimed to promote menstrual health in Bangladesh. The main goal was to structurally improve the health, wellbeing, and social and economic participation of girls between 10 and 15 years old. The Ritu Programme consisted of three main elements: 1) the interventions in Netrakona that are directly targeted at school girls, 2) a national communication and advocacy campaign, and 3) the development of a biodegradable sanitary pad.

The aims of this online meeting include:

  • To present the advantages of organising a programme on menstrual health
  • To share the main lessons learned  from the four year programme
  • To exchange with the audience on questions and next steps on how to improve menstrual health programmes

Time and Date

3rd of December 2020, 12.00-13.30 CET
